Pittsburgh and Allegheny County Estate Planning & Probate Attorney
Hi, I’m Attorney John D’Onofrio. At my Allegheny County law office located in Western Pennsylvania, I strive to serve clients with the high-quality legal guidance they deserve. I understand that creating an estate plan can be stressful. Many people often avoid planning for the future, hoping they won’t have to think about their own death. Creating an estate plan is for the sake of your family and loved ones, as it may ultimately help them to avoid probate or to reduce the time and expense of probate if properly planned. For this reason, I encourage individuals to create their plans as soon as possible. When you work with me, you will receive experienced legal guidance based on your specific needs, goals, and objectives. Like an old-fashioned country doctor, I make house calls throughout Allegheny County and Western Pennsylvania!
